This seminar will examine the complex characteristics of eating disorders and explore the impact of the social/cultural risk factors that influence both their development and maintenance. Attendees will learn strategies for effectively using mindfulness and emotional awareness while incorporating Christian scripture, prayer and meditation in their work with individuals, families and groups.

Experiential exercises will be demonstrated and practiced to assist participants in integrating these methods into their professional practice. The value of two concepts crucial to recovery—finding true worth and letting go of cultural expectations—will be addressed.
